“Outstanding, a true five-star hotel with seven-star owners!”
Reviewed 14 September 2006

We stayed at the Chester Residence 4 nights from August 12th to August 16th. We had an Outstanding experience and the main reason is the owners. Jacky and Brian are fantastic. Everything in the Chester Residence is done to the highest standards (location, space, decor, food, quality of beds, videos, clean...etc...) and it is given to you in a very nice and stylish way:
- accomodations cannot be better: we had a very confortable, very clean and very large two-bedroom apartment. All the rooms are spacious and well decorated. The bathrooms are perfect. The kitchen is furnished with everything and supplied with lots of fresh items such as orange juice, milk, butter etc...
- location is wonderful, safe and quiet: it is located in the best neighborhood, at a walking distance of the best streets in the city.
We had a great time in Edinburgh, we enjoyed every minute we spent at the Chester Residence and we hope to go back soon!
Thank you!

Reviewed 7 July 2006

After a long flight we arrived at the Chester Residence to a clean, comfortable, quiet 2 bedroom apartment with a kitchen kitchent that was supplied with fresh fruit, eggs, bread, butter, jellies and jar of candies and cookies, water and juice and milk. It was wonderful to be able to prepare a nice breakfast and crawl into our comfortable bed. Jacky was extremelly helpful to us and helped us find a driver to take us touring (and we loved him!). The apartment was comfortable, clean, large and had everything we needed. This place was the best experience during our two week stay in Scotland and England. We loved Scotland and we loved the Chester Residence. I would HIGHLY recommend this place for anyone looking in Edinburough, Scotland. We walked everywhere yet we were on a quiet street. This place felt like home. The Chester Residence deserves to be rated #1.
Wonderful!!!!!! Thank you Jacky for a great start to our vacation.
We will be returning to the Chester Residence!!
